Fly4Life – Angle Camp

April 2 @ 8:00 am - April 6 @ 5:00 pm

April 2019 Angle Camp at Skydive DeLand

The camp has been moved back a few weeks into April. We noticed that airfare and local hotels tend to be full or very expensive in the area due to Spring Break and Daytona Bike Week.

After an analysis of our last several camps and many of the events we traveled to during 2016 and 2017, we’ve concluded that we need smaller groups. When these camps began, groups of 8 were chosen because we weren’t doing much more than tracking and pretty much all head first. Even though we feel that our camps are still mainly based on angles, the natural progression of this type of flying has taken us to mix it up with head up, static vertical/flat formations, etc. Even just flying angles, we have realized that taking out 2 people out of a group of 8 already allows coaches to push participants closer to their limits, providing a more progressive and safer learning environment.

Camp Format
  • 5 day camp, Tuesday thru Saturday
  • Participants will be organized by skill level in groups of 6
  • Groups will stay the same throughout
  • Coaches will rotate every day. Bringing in different flying styles, and ways to explain the techniques in practice
  • 6 jumps per day (more if there is still light). About 40 min between jumps. Plan the flight, Go fly, Pack (use a packer), Video debrief, Repeat!
  • Participants should arrive before sunset on the 1st in order to fill up waivers, get your rigs checked with the DZ and put money on your account for the 30 jumps we hope to make. (Don’t worry the dz will refund any money not used during the camp)
  • Mandatory event briefing Tuesday, April 2nd at 8:30am, participants MUST be ready to fly by the beginning of this meeting
  • Registration US$400
  • Cancellations/refunds will be charged $100 administrative fee;┬áno refunds will be processed within 30 days of the event unless a replacement for your slot is found.

***NEW*** We’ll be jumping from 15K from Tuesday the 2nd to Friday the 5th. And from 18K with O2 on Saturday the 6th. There will be an O2 briefing for everyone, and particularly for those not familiar with it on Saturday morning.
